Andy Hopkins AKA 'Nipper'

Transport Manager

Making him one of the longest standing employees, Andy joined the company around 13 years ago as the driver of our 7.5 tonne tipper. He then passed his class 2 HGV licences and took a 4 year break. Andy then returned as part of our customer advisors team at Ferndown. Shortly after returning, Andy then went and managed our yard at St Leonards for 4 years building up the recycling side of the business. He then returned back on the road driving the grab lorry. Finally, he has now returned his position of maintaining our Distribution Yard in Ferndown! Andy has certainly seen lots of varied roles in the business, and I'm told another nick name for him is Eye Candy Andy!

What’s your favourite part of the job?

My favourite part of my job is every muckaway pile is different, from an easy soil muckaway to a hard to grab concrete pile, I like a challenge! Doing a good job for the customers hopefully means they'll have me back.

What’s your favourite product we sell?

With such a vast array of products it's hard to pick a favourite, from the sandstone and porcelain slabs to the decorative stones there is so many to choose from.

What’s your favourite colour?


What would your dream garden look like?

Nothing too flash, room for the kids to play, a nice patio with a BBQ area and a  hot tub to unwind and relax.

If you could have any super power what would it be?

To be able to see into the future! 

If you won a million pounds, what would you do with it?

I'd invest in a few properties, I'd like to get a nice camper van and do some more travelling, help the family out and give a few quid to friends
